Today could beheld in sharp contrast to yesterday. I was online at 9:55 ready to purchase Atoms For Peace Tix and at 10:00 AM I got through on my first effort. Bought 2 tix for the Tuesday night show and 5 minutes later both nights were sold out. It was all very fair. Five minutes to get tickets to see an amazing ensemble of musicians. If one was not there within the five minutes they don't deserve to go. Or rather they could go to the show in Chicago which my friend Ryan told me didn't, and may not, sell out (although Saturday is sold out, Sunday is still available). I will see Thom Yorke twice in one week. I have done this with Radiohead many times but always in big venues. Couple of nights in a row in Dublin or a Boston - Montreal - New York triple. However, this will be much different. For starters the venues are much smaller and in New York I have GA tix so I will be up front. Also its not Radiohead (I'd take Radiohead any day) its Flea, Joey Waronker, Nigel Goodrich, and Mauro Refosco supporting Thom's solo work some of which was released as The Eraser a couple of years ago. I'm still super excited and my mood is very much elevated after securing tix to 2 shows.
My knee is feeling better. I don't think its just the joy I'm experiencing with the whole Atoms For Peace thing. I legitimately think my knee is getting better. The Celebrex is helping and I have an ice pace around my knee all day. I'm surprised I haven't done damage to my peroneal nerve. I heard that happen to someone before, although I can't remember who. Tomorrow is going to be amazing weather wise and I am very tempted to go for a ride but I'm not going to. Another day of ice and rest nay boredom.........
In The Future,
